    Hi guys,

    Recently we had some local Exchange server problems so I temporarily redirected all mails to my cPanel. Now that the Exchange server is back online, how can I move all the mails that are sitting in cPanel back to the Exchange server. I want to make sure that the mails maintain it's time/date stamps etc and that it doesn't corrupt anything in Exchange.

    Can you please give me some tips as to the easiest way to do this? (Preferably from the Exchange server itself and without me having to work on each users machine)

    Thanks so much,

    Hello :)

    There are currently no native transfer tools that will migrate email data to a non-cPanel destination server. You will need to manually migrate this data. The following guide is intended for migrations from unsupported control panels, however it details where email data is stored in the event you want to manually copy the data:

    You could also try using an unsupported utility such as imapsync:

    Thank you.
